    I'm sure it's been mentioned on here before, has anybody else noticed steam coming out of their front grille on the left hand side (stood facing the car) towards the top closest to the bonnet.
    It's only noticeable since the onset of the colder weather and only after parking up, it lasts for less than a minute.

    Could it be moisture running down the inside of the wings and on to something hot maybe ?

    I've checked coolant level nothing out of the ordinary there.

    Apparently there is a flaw in one of the plastic components in the front of the car - water pools there and then results in steam when the car is parked up. It's totally normal, if a little disconcerting...

    Yep, it's been discussed before a while ago.

    I think everyone has seen it as some stage ... usually after rain and nothing to worry about.
